GCAP CoolCast: Garden City Ammonia Program

Fall Protection Systems

by on Jun.19, 2017, under News

Rooftop Anchor, Inc. engineers, manufactures and installs suspended access and rooftop access fall protection systems for commercial, residential, industrial, military bases, sports venues, aircraft maintenance and mining applications. GCAP is proud to announce they are the newest vendor @ GCAP’s convention center.  We would like to thank your continued support for training and safety.

Rooftop Anchor, Inc employees and network of representatives have extensive experience in fall protection safety in new construction and retrofit projects. In our experience we have found that the majority of work environments lack suitable fall protection systems for employees, window cleaning crews, maintenance teams and other contractors who work at height or risk a fall of 4 feet or greater. Rooftop Anchor does not “sell” fall protection products. We are a full service partner that designs, manufactures, installs, and certifies a fall protection system that will make your work environment code compliant.

Temprite Oil Separators

by on May.23, 2017, under News

GCAP would like to thank Temprite and their donations to GCAP for training and also their booth at the convention center. Temprite’s coalescent oil separators set the industry standard for energy-efficient performance. We got one installed in the new engine room.

Temprite’s coalescent oil separators set the industry standard for energy-efficient performance. Unlike conventional separators, coalescent oil separators are not dependent on velocity for efficiency, maintaining the same level of effectiveness down to 20% of maximum flow.

  • The high-efficiency performance of coalescing oil separators means better heat transfer through the coils, translating into significant kW savings.
  • Coalescent oil separators are ideal for OEM applications where system cleanliness is paramount.
